This sure is a story you don’t see everyday. A little know LPGA and Futures Tour player named Rachel Connor was pulled over on Wednesday morning and arrested because of drunken driving in Florida. 

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the 21-year-old golfer was stopped at 2 a.m. and blew a .133 and .137, and while that is somewhat news because of her status as a pro golfer, maybe the most interesting thing about the story was who was in the passenger seat. 

Former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George was riding shotgun next to the England national team member. George was not detained. 

The picture to your right was tweeted by Rachel earlier in the night at the Archie Griffin Celebrity Golf Classic with the caption “The Lovely Eddie George.”

George, the former Heisman Trophy winner, recently published a book with his wife Tamara titled Marriage For Real

And I thought this was a new lowpoint for Eddie when I saw this in Nashville 6 weeks ago..... Check out what else he has been doing besides 21 year olds. I had a good chuckle because I saw this advertisement above several urinals and thought it was a hoax. As it turns out, it is not.

What a great publicity stunt.........

Certainly it was Tamara that came up with this idea. Will sell a lot of books for sure. Marriage for Get Real.

Marriage for Real?? .  .  .  Real Dumb.  Hopefully Rachel Conner will get her tour card so she can support "The Lovely Eddie George" when his wife takes all his money.   The other girl looks like she was trying to attract a Tiger.

With my marriage in ruins, I hoped against hope that Eddie George and his wife would write a book about what to do.  I'm saved!  

Amazing what people will do for money, live in the public spotlight like fools with no morals or ethics, then believe that no one is keeping track.

I was going to make a deragatory comment about George and about THE Ohio State University, but I just can't.  If this guy can get someone legal, gorgeous, and half his age to ride around in a car with him at 2 am, he is doing something very, very right.  He will deny in public and to his wife that anything happened or was about to happen, but it sure would have been interesting to be the proverbial "fly on the wall."

If he has any money left after the divorce, at least he knows that he still has plenty of mojo to take back onto the dating scene.

---George, the former Heisman Trophy winner, recently published a book with his wife Tamara titled “Marriage For Real.”

George poses for a photo with the woman, so he wasnt trying to hide anything...

Skip the salaciousness for a bit...maybe they live next to each other and she was, indeed, just gining him a ride home. How about waiting til all facts are in?
